Sunshine Girls get free massages
Jamaica Sunshine Girls team, now in the final hours of preparation for the Fast5 World Series in Australia, received massages from two massage therapy students of G.C. Foster College this week.
The Sunshine Girls had the massages at the end of their game simulation exercise, held at the National Indoor Sports Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Interim coach of the Sunshine Girls, Sasher-Gaye Henry, said the girls were very appreciative for the kind gesture by G.C. Foster College.
"We are very grateful to G.C. Foster College who gave their service to us at no cost," said Henry.
"It was also very beneficial because as the games go on the lactic acid builds up and this is a part of the recovery process and so this was very helpful to us," she said.
Henry added: "I am sorry that we don't have a massage therapist going with us to this tournament because this would have been very beneficial. We could have had some massages done when we get there."
Henry and Marvette Anderson were appointed interim coaches in August, following the resignation of head coach Jermaine Allison-McCracken in July.
The Sunshine Girls, who finished fifth at the last Fast5 World Series, are scheduled to fly out tomorrow for the championships, which will be held from October 28-29.
